Back in July, Brent got a gift certificate for his birthday. As a result, we spent the night in Pebble Beach on Saturday. We poked around in Carmel for a couple of hours after lunch in a tea shop. We got a massage at the spa. We got spiffed up for dinner.

I certainly enjoyed myself. Swanky spas with a whole room devoted to aromatherapy are fun and the people who work there continually offer you everything from water to tea to chocolate. I like cushy towels and massage oil with lemongrass in it. Also the warm heavy thing the massage therapist put on my back. I like rooms with oversized chairs, fireplaces, and giant floral arrangements, particularly when they overlook the ocean.

The ocean. See, that’s the important part. The ocean and the trees make the place beautiful. The humans just clutter up the place with bloated and grandiose houses.

Next time, we camp.
